Happy Sunday (evening) MTG peeps,
In today's late day post, we wanted to bring to your attention some right proper Return to Ravnica spoilers. These are definitely not official previews and come from some questionable sources so please do not take these as 'bona fide' until officially previewed over on the mothersite.
First up, the Rakdos mythic legendary, posted by a Scotty Kelley onto the StarCityGames facebook page.
Rakdos, Lord of Riots, bbrr
Legendary Creature - Demon, Mythic Rare
You can't cast Rakdos, Lord of Riots unless an opponent lost life this turn.
Creature spells you cast cost 1 less to cast for each 1 life your opponents have lost this turn.
We're sold on the 6/6 flying and trample for only four mana with the not-too-restrictive casting conditions. EDH fanboyz and standard gamers are likely quite happy with this card.
Next up - a cycle of uncommon artifacts from forum user 'daygl0'. Again, looks and smells legit and we wouldn't be posting it here on MTG Realm unless we already did a bit of homework on it but still, take with a grain of salt.
Selesnya Keyrune, 3
Tap: Add g or w to your mana pool.
gw: Selesnya Keyrune becomes a 3/3 green and white Wolf artifact creature until end of turn.
Izzet Keyrune, 3
Tap: Add u or r to your mana pool.
ur: Until end of turn, Izzet Keyrune becomes a 2/1 blue and red Elemental artifact creture.
Whenever Izzet Keyrune deals combat damage to a player, you may draw a card. If you do, discard a card.
Golgari Keyrune, 3
Tap: Add b or g to your mana pool.
bg: Golgari Keyrune becomes a 2/2 black and green artifact creature with deathtouch until end of turn.
Rakdos Keyrune, 3
Tap: Add b or r to your mana pool.
br: Rakdos Keyrune becomes a 3/1 black and red Devil artifact creature with first strike until end of turn.
These simply rock. Taps for your guild mana and will animate to either chump or deliver a hit. Looking forward to limited and constructed applications with these.
From the very same user who posted the keyrunes, here supposedly is the alternate art for Dread Mangler. Both illustrations from artists Peter Mohrbacher and Svetlin Velinov rock our Golgari world.
